First Garmin Head-up Display (HUD) Reviews Hit the Web

Garmin HUD 3

Just a few weeks after we announced the new Garmin head-up display (HUD) for smartphone navigation apps1, the first media reviews are out. Publications such as CNET, GigaOm and TUAW have put the device through its paces and written up reviews. "It was a pleasure driving with the Garmin HUD...After I got used to it, driving without the HUD felt a bit naked and unsafe," wrote Mel Martin from TUAW.

Make sure to check out the full reviews to learn more. If you're interested in seeing the HUD in action, we also recommend watching the CNET video below on how to install and use the device.

HUD is an innovative new way of viewing navigation information in the car, projecting crisp and bright directions onto a transparent film on the windshield or an attached reflector lens. By providing comprehensive road guidance at a glance and right within the driver’s line of sight, HUD can help increase safety and reduce driver distraction. HUD is available for pre-order now on You can save $20 ($129.99 instead of $149.99) if you order before August 18, 2013.



1 Purchase required. Compatible with Garmin StreetPilot Onboard or NAVIGON navigation apps.
